My husband and I stopped here on a road trip from St. Louis. The food was delicious. Especially the ribs. If you come here you MUST get the ribs. Potato salad and sauces were great too.

Many thanks for your kind words. St. Louis has two of my all-time favorites: Pappy's and Bogart's Smokehouse. Ask for Skip Steele. He is Executive Chef for both. Really appreciate your good words on my ribs!
